AIM, NITI Aayog announces partnership with Dassault Systemes Fondation

Atal Innovation Mission (AIM), NITI Aayog has signed an agreement with Dassault Systemes Fondation to jointly work towards providing a digitally rich ecosystem of Innovation in India and promoting STEM based innovation and entrepreneurship among aspiring young minds across the country.

One of the flagship programs of AIM, the Atal Tinkering Labs (ATLs) has played a pivotal role in fostering creativity and imagination amongst school children. Dassault Systemes Fondation dedicated to transform the future of education and research in India with 3D technologies and virtual universes, is all set to contribute to the ATL program in three broad areas - project based, self-paced learning content, hackathons and challenges and inter-country academia collaborations.

Dassault Systemes Fondation has designed and developed an initiative as part of its CSR objectives, an initial set of ‘Ready to use’ well documented self-learning training cum instructional playbook, with appropriate videos for visual understanding which they would be sharing with the ATL students that they can access digitally. This playbook comes with instructional videos for teachers so that it can be implemented with minimal support from experts. This content shall be available for AIM to offer to all schools with ATLs and other schools as well as out of school children in India for use.

Under this SoI, Dassault Systemes Fondation shall design and organise innovative challenges/hackathons for ATLs, promoting problem-solving skills, scientific and technology based exploratory learning skills and innovation culture amongst students and teachers.


Through this collaboration, AIM and Dassault Systemes Fondation shall jointly encourage inter-country collaborations amongst schools and school students for collaborative science / technology learning, skilling and cultural interactions amongst students.
